'Many Gables'

'Many Gables', the Eugene S. Kienle Sr. estate designed by William H. Gompert c. 1921 in Kings Point. Click HERE to see the brochure from when 'Many Gables' was for sale and HERE for pictures of the house when it was featured in American Architect & Architecture.

In this same area a unidentified
LIGC estate built around the same time as "Many Gables" is for sale. This area was part of "Broadlawn" the Angeline Booth 50-acre estate prior to land being sold. I would suspect 1 Cow Lane was close to the farm complex that once existed.

another house that looks great entombed by shrubs. the soft fluffy look of the greenery always helps to soften the rough edges of the house. this one is really nice with the round doortops and windows and the tower and big chimneys but i'd move it the hell out of there. you couldn't take a deep breath without offending someone. looks like shacktown on a grand scale.

security word def - "eface" - what you look like after a long night of blogging and conversing with friends on ----book.
